hate it, 01 Dec 2012really its not a water proof only water resistant.this mobile is fully waste.go galaxy s2 or x... morePhones are for communication, not to immerse in water. This phone is water resistant, that means, whenever you put the phone in water by mistake, it will not affect the working of the phone. Other phones, if you put them in water, you need to make them dry before using it again. You can use this phone without worry.
Hi guys. I badly need your help..
I'm a sony xperia fan, i've been using my xperia neo v for a year now and i'm really contented with it (except for the low internal memory and battery life). Im thnking of upgrading my handset to XPERIA ACRO S (PINK), been reading the reviews and i so like the specs. but my problem is, i like the s3 too. I'm really torn between the two phones. i'm into social networking, love to take pics, download movies, play games, love to download go launcher and themes.. I cant figure out which fits me.
Please share your thoughts. Some say s3 is better while some say acro s is the best.
Most people here in the Phils are using S3, and i dnt like the feeling when everybody has the same phone. But the specs of s3 cant be ignored.
Hi, when my battery reach the temperature of 40°C (100F I think) and over then it stops charging, anyone else facing this problem with acro s? I've tried other USB chargers (from Sony) and still the same problem.
sory for bad english, i had tried put it underwater with to test underwater video recordng.
1st try: moist thing at the back of camera glass. no defect.
the moisture gone by itself.
2nd: no moisture prob.
3rd: got moisture.
4th: no moisture, i learn how to prevent auto zoom in underwater. By keep pressing the zoom out button before u put into the water until ur already in the water. then can release. coz the zooming in problem usually occur at the time when ur putting it into the water.

zee, 28 Nov 2012actually it's not water proof.. it is WATER RESISTANT only..it's totally different.
The Xper... moreIts water proof. Very much so. It was tested on a TV channel here, they brought it to a resort and abused it the whole day, threw it around and left it at the bottom of the pool much deeper than 1 meter, and did a lot of underwater video recording. It was good as new at the end of the day. Cannot say the same about the samsung in the same test, it also was working at the end of the day but had water inside the display.
You just have to youtube it to see that Acro S is VERY much waterproof and solid. Run over by cars and thrown and kicked around, and still working. Very well done for a fairly high end HD unit. The guy here who destroyed his in water, bad luck, hope Sony will replace it.
piivis, 28 Nov 2012i but acro s underwater about 15 sec and 10cm deep and it died after 10 minutes IT IS NOT WATE... morePhones are made for communication, "not for swimming and not for KEEPING them in a sink or a pool".
Why is this phone so hard to find in Europe?
I think it is not imported at all in Greece but I am having a hard time finding it with a EU guarantee.
Anonymous, 28 Nov 2012No.. the total is 32GB..Actually yes, my acro S has its 11gb (not 16 because the 4-5gb is being used by the system) amd a 32gb sd card. For a tota of 43gb. Again not 46 because of system files that took up some memory.
had the phone for 1 month now (this is my second device after i had some dead pixels) the phone is good but not that much, what i don't like about is the physical buttons (camera / power / volume ) with in time you will notice that the buttons are getting less respond because they got pushed inside you will getting some hard time trying to take a picture with the physical buttons (you still can use the on screen auto snap) and the other thing I found its hard to use the phone in rainy days.
in the end its good but its not that good.

The Xperia™ acro S was made to keep up. It's water resistant and dust protected.
